Cooking with FOX 7: Waldorf Salad

Mary Olivar from Whole Foods makes a recipe as we get ready for fall.

The recipe is as follows:



  • 1 cup whole raw cashews
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon Bragg Liquid Aminos


  • 3 OG fuji apples, cored and diced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 cup seedless grapes, halved
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 1 lb. cooked animal welfare rated split chicken breast, diced


For the cashew-naise, put cashews in a container, add cold water to cover by an inch; cover the container and refrigerate overnight. Drain cashews and rinse under cold water. Place soaked cashews in a blender and add vinegar, mustard, turmeric, liquid aminos and 3/4 cup water. Blend until very smooth, 1 to 2 minutes.

For salad, in a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. Toss again with celery, grapes, chicken and cashew-naise. Chill at least 1 hour and up to 1 day.
